Subject: Old newspaper iron
Essential "factory tour" overview of the printing of a newspaper in the 1970s. Everything from the computers (IBM mainframe) to the packing machine at the end is massive and unashamedly metallic.

Two things to note: The number of people doing essentially unskilled labor (pushing paper around, filling a truck, etc.) and the number of times you swear the piece of equipment being featured will take someones head off in a second.
